UGLY

Here’s a “fun” fact, before yesterday the defending Super Bowl champion had never been shutout. So add that to the multitude of humiliations the Giants suffered yesterday.

I was not expecting the Giants to win that game yesterday. Atlanta has been one of the best teams in the NFC and I didn’t think New York would beat them at home. But, I expected it to be a competitive game and I was very wrong.

We have seen this pattern before. When the Giants are “All In” they are unbeatable. When they are not, they are going to get smoked. This was the Bengals game all over again, except even uglier. I don’t know who that was wearing #10, but it wasn’t Eli. And before we blame him for everything, where were Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks?  The offensive line shouldn’t escape notice either, terrible job by them.

On defense the Giants’ pass rush couldn’t save the Giants’ pass defense. The Giants did sack Matt Ryan once, but other than that he had far too much time to throw. And with Prince out, Hosley got burned. Watching him yesterday reminded me of Bill Parcells nicknaming Elvis Patterson “toast” because he got burned so often.

Amazingly, the Giants still control their own fate. Win their final two and they make the playoffs. That’s the start of a script we are very familiar with. Hopefully, the Giants remember how to execute it.

    Unexpected outcome. Good luck turning the spigot on.

    What happened to YankeesRedSox.com? I am getting BueHost’s webpage and email to you and Andy bounced back as undeliverable (no such user)

    I’ll tell you what’s ugly! No site available at Yankeesredsox.com anymore! What’s up Peter?

      Greg/BL- Short answer, I let Andy handle tech stuff today. Long answer, we are converting the site to Word Press because the current platform isn’t very good. You are both certainly more than familiar with all the problems we have had and we finally got sick of them and decided to do something. Unfortunately, the conversion from one host to another hasn’t been as clean as we hoped, but it should get all cleared up in the next couple of days. (knock on wood)

      As always, thanks for your support over there. I think the “2013 version” of the site will be a HUGE improvement.

    Uh, well, let’s just say that the loss to the Ravens wasn’t much prettier than the loss to the Falcons. Ouch. Eli is AWOL, the D is porous, everyone is limping around. This team is still in contention, sure, but who can they beat?

      Mitchell- You beat me to the punch so to speak. To answer your question, I think they could beat the Jets. That may be about it right now.
